's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h
and the way in which latino catholics catholics are more likely to support the democratic candidate -- it will not be as good as from deducter in future election as it has been in the past as a bellwether. one of the things that we've focused on the election season is how the catholics vote is important how it can be seen a bell bellwether or swing vote. in between the different religious groups here. these are from exit polls from recent election. you can see, it's a percentage of the groups that are supporting the democratic party candidate. either for the president or off year election for the member of the house. and you can see on the right there the furthest column to the right those are people with no religious affiliation and those with another religious afghanistan which is neither christian or jewish is heavily supporting democrat in the last decade. you is see protestant they haven't won in the last decade either. i wouldn't expect them to have any chance in the election either among the prod accident. the catholic vote is the one that is swinging back and forth. it's the

was held in washington tuesday by the national association of latino elected and appointed officials also known as naleo. this is about 45 minutes. [inaudible conversations] >> good morning. we're going to get, we're going to get started with our briefing this morning. the presentation on election 201 by the naleo fund, the national association of latino elected and appointed officials. we're two organizations, one is a membership organization of ofe nation's latino public servants serving county commissions, state legislatures all the way up to members of congress and the united states senate. the naleo educational fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to promote the full participation of latinos in the american political process. that includes encouraging legal permanent residents to become u.s. citizens, encouraging all u.s. citizens 18 and older who are eligible to vote, we also provide training opportunities for latino elected and appointed officials, and we promote a policy framework to make sure that participation in our electoral democracy is acc
this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up
, and it's still the case, blacks and latinos are always sort of brought into that cue, but the cue was so big this time in terms of the entrants into the labor market some 873,000 new people -- more people employed, and so that obviously created more jobs for blacks and more for hispanics. >> we know the growth rate is still pretty weak. it's only at 1%. how does the economy actually grow? how does it become more healthy? >> i would expect that next quarter around it will be much greater. it's 1.3% now, but the signal that is we're seeing now, those signals will play out, and the thing that we've been saying for months is that the economy has not been slowed because lack of profitability. in fact, corporations have been experiencing record profits. they have record amounts of cash. we have record low interest rates. so all of the conditions for growth have been there, and so what we're seeing now happening is that they're beginning to materialize. >> finally, there's always the political aspect of all of this, and there's some conservative who's say, look, you know, we think you're fudgin

election the latino vote out there in nevada. the stat tistics from boomberg news shows nevada has the largest shift since 2008. latinos cast 15% of the ballot in 2008 and three quarters voted for obama in 2008. talk about how that is impacting the election now. >> there is a huge push to turn more voters out to the polls. to play up all of the rostered issues that seem to matter the most. it's a very large population in the state, it's about 20% of the population is latino organize gin and that goes up in clark county which is where lave is which is the main population of the state. this voting block cares a lot about the economy, a lot about education and immigration disease not rank as the highest issue of interest to these voters but it becomes an issue that is an underlying across the board, are you saying the right thing on this pop sick and it could be 2/3 one these voters are split on that. this is an issue candidates on both sides have been fighting about because obama made a promise to address it his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time a
are missing is the latino vote. and i think that we need to add at least three to four percentage points to president obama's numbers nationally, and especially in the swing states in the southwest because they are not gathering the strength of the latino vote out there. >> we're going to talk a little bit more about that in a moment, because you're right about that. amy holmes, pick a state for me first. >> i've got to agree with maria that ohio is the state. it's the conventional wisdom, no republican president has won the presidency without ohio. i'll be honest with you, your producers asked me to look at the electoral map last night. i watch bbc detective shows, like a lot of americans. i think we're looking at this race nationally and we're looking at national trends. i think it's very telling that the president of the united states was the first sitting president to cast his vote early in person. i think that president obama is looking at his own numbers and is seeing that the tide is shifting against him and a very big part of the president's strategy is to get that early voting o
in the stand and say people are voting for barack obama because he's black. or he has the latino vote because he's minority. >> cenk: that's also interesting. maybe the idea is, look, you couldn't possibly vote for obama if you cared about policies or issues or results. only people who vote for him are blacks and latinos who are doing it based on race. maybe that's the dog whistle they want to send out there. there is one other thing i want to talk about. steve wynn owns a lot of casinos including the wynn in vegas. they've put out a pamphlet, a 67-page pamphlet in how to vote. it says the prefer candidates support policies that promote a friendly business and living environments to wynn resorts our approximately 12,000 employees and gaming industry as a whole. they're in nevada, which is a swing state. that's a wink, wink, nod, nod, vote our way or we might fire you. they didn't say who to vote for on the presidential ticket, but i don't know if you could figure it out in this report watch. >> i created 250,000 direct and indirect jobs. that's exactly--the number is 250,000. that's 250,000 m
talk about research and p.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to h
% of the vote among latino voters. african-american was like 95-4 or something like that and the poll has shown the african-american vote is rocksolid for the president and the numbers extremely high so lets let's just sort of assume rough parity with last time. but the question was, as you suggested the turnout levels among latino voters and i would add young voters very much questionable and when i have gone on campuses i cannot find a pulse. you saw a registration table registered to voters. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table registering. there's there is just no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven-point margin becomes you know, six or five or four? sort of taking turnout down among these two groups? just by necessity this was going to be a lot closer. >> look in 2008, the president had to win this back. a seven-point margin for a democrat is big. that is a historic margin for a democrat. no, think all of us expected this to be a closer race. i think charlie the thing we should look for it now with early voting, we h
is a felony popped up in predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods. prison sentence for voter fraud. likely targeting former felons that have a right to vote. clear channel, we are sitting in a clear channel studio. they announced that they would take down the billboards after the sponsor refuse today come forward. the company is donating 10 billboards declare voting is a right, not a crime. >> that's good. nice. >> stephanie: the judge ruled, pennsylvania we had a call yesterday, chris the judge ruled pennsylvania voters without photo i.d. could still cast a regular ballot. state sponsored ads have continued to tell residents they must show i.d. they are ads are on radio and it. v. and mailed to seniors via a precipitation trouble program. billboard targeting spanish speakers continues to misleadingly promote the i.d. requirement. and we have talked about this a lot. several -- excuse me, present ceos are pressuring their employees to vote for romney saying they may lose their job in obama is ele
the latino vote out there. i want to get your take on how well the republican party has done this time around. guest: i think they have done a lousy job. we have marco rubio out here. instead of taking him into the latino sections of las vegas, they take him out to green valley and anderson. we need to go to the latinos. we cannot sit back and expect them to come to us. the democrats have done a great job on this. they unions push their members who are predominantly hispanic to register and vote democrat. the republicans have not done that. host: is it too late at this point for republicans to get that vote? guest: i don't know if it is too late. we need to get latinos explaining to latinos why the republicans should be their choice. i start to see that. host: let go out to california on the independent line. caller: i think all american citizens should be protected. what happened in benghazi is our military was put on alert right away and our president made our military stand down and not protect american citizens because it is political. what is really going on? it is a new world order and
thinks the latino vote in nevada would do it. that would put the president over the top there. if he didn't get nevada for some reason, the president's options would be colorado, virginia, new hampshire or florida. the president with an easier path. what about governor romney. let's leave this one blue. can governor romney get there if ohio is going blue. can romney get all the way to 270 when the president's already at 275. well, he would have to win florida, he would have to win virginia. then you're at 255, 254. he would have to win colorado. that would put him in play at 263. then from there, how does governor romney get over the top? he would if he won wisconsin, paul ryan's home state. 10 electoral votes right there. logic being if the president's winning ohio, these are two very similar states. so wisconsin would be one model and let's just say for the sake of argument that one did stay blue, that puts the president right there. governor romney would have to get there by winning in nevada, not enough, and new hampshire. so you see governor romney would essentially almost have to ru
in florida. and just last week, a tampa bay times poll showed governor romney leading among latinos in florida, 46 to 44%. those are impressive poll results, and clearly absolutely crashing into the conventional thinking that hispanic-americans will vote monofor president obama in florida, in settlement, he said republican party is natural home of hispanic voters in either resonating with the voters now or it is being proved true in the latest polling or perhaps both, to top it off, a new "usa today-gallup poll" of the swing states today shows romney with a 5 five point leadn the president, 51 to 46 among likely voters. these are likely voters. and the fact is that lead is pretty extraordinary, again with the battle ground states, but the real headline is that the governor has women to thank for this boost in the poll results. the governor is now tied with the president, 48 to 48%. among women. that is a very big deal indeed, back in 2008, women supported president obama over john mccain by a 1 13 point margin this is likely to have a profound impact on the elect if these trends con
among voting groups already leaning to the president, youth, latinos, union workers. three, woo undecided women including with this new ad. >> and it would be my preference that they reverse row v. wade. >> hopefully reverse row v. wade. >> reporter: and as for that endorsement from general powell, the president said he was grateful and appreciative of it. he had no advance notice it was coming. but after the general announced it, the president did call him and thank him for it. and he mentioned it here at a rally to the crowd saying it was a deep honor. and no doubt something of a boost to his campaign. wolf. >> no doubt about that. jessica, thank you. mitt romney is focusing in on one of the most critical states for him no republican has ever won the white house without carrying ohio. and that's where the gop nominee is campaigning nonstop on this day. our national political correspondent jim acosta's with the romney campaign in worthington, ohio, right now. what's the very latest, jim? >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney just wrapped up a campaign event here in the columbus area.
think whoever is elected has no choice but to get this done. >> how about the latino vote? where does that stand now? and how is it that it feels like republicans have lost that vote when george w. bush owned it? >> he really did. i mean, by republican standards george w. bush did really well with the latino vote. jeb bush in my home state of florida when he ran for governor, he owned the latino vote. right now it's looking really bad for republicans. but again, that's part of the process of the primary where each republican tried to go further and further right on immigration and it was seen -- they were seen as being people who were bashing immigrants. even if they were trying to take a strong stand on illegal immigration. >> republicans have been accused of being obstructionist to this president's attempts at policy making. >> right. >> what's your thought on that? >> if only they could be as kind-hearted and giving and loving as democrats were to george w. bush. it makes me sad sometimes to think of how sweet nancy pelosi and harry reid were -- oh, wait a second. now they tried to
there are women of color who tend to vote for democratic. even among groups like latinos, latinos are voting democratic them latino males. there are younger and older woman. there are really three generations. they've both republicans and obama has a problem with seniors for some time. if younger people vote, they vote democratic. host: we showed that "washington times "headline where he might not get -- where obama may not get big backing because 38% of voters said it will death in vote which is down from 66% four years ago. guest: feel look at 2010 an off- year elections -- 6.6 million young women who voted in 2008 did not show up in 2010. a 11 million on married women who had voted in 2008 did not show up. we need them back in 2012. host: what are their top issues? we had a poll this morning in the newspaper that showed the most important issue that impact women and abortion topped the list. guest: was flabbergasted -- flabbergasted by that paul. -- i was flabbergasted by that poll. the newest poll showed 47% of women said their top issue is some kind of woman's issue like abortion or bir
vetoed it. now, listen, democrats can't get so comfortable and cozy that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituenc
colorado with the latino vote significant, it's hard to see him winning nevada where the latino vote is huge, but he would have to win nevada. that would get him to 260. so you have to get 11 more here. you could do that with wisconsin and new hampshire. so he could win without winning colorado or ohio. the question is that i just showed you it's mathematically possible, the question is is it ied logically plausible in the sense here 18 traditional more republican dna when it comes to presidential politics. it's very hard to see mitt romney is losing ohio but winning wisconsin and iowa. these are more democratic states if you will in dna. so if president obama is winning here, history tells you he's most likely winning one or both of these. is it possible? yes. is it plausible? >> all of us are going to be doing a lot of contortions looking at this magic wall. gloria, wrap it up for us. where does it stand right now? >> it's hard to say. john was talking a moment ago about the question of momentum. who's got the momentum. we honestly don't know. our heads are exploding with all these
at november 8th instead of the 6th. the county addressed the problem yesterday with state latino leaders. the department will spend 30,000 printing new flyers and buying ads on spanish language tv and radio stations telling voters of the mistake. >> and i feel very badly that it was made. we have to do something to solve that. we have a few days left. >> officials say printing the wrong date waa mistake, not on purpose and an investigation into how it happened is underway. >> eight billboards in the atlanta area that offer voters a chance to win a gun are raising eyebrows. they say anyone who shows up at a outdoor store with a voting sticker will be put in a raffle but officials say that's illegal. >> everybody needs to talk and learn and be informed. >> the gun store owner who put up the billboards said he just wanted to get gun owners involved but after being contacted by election officials he said anyone who owns a gun can enter the contest regardless of if they voted. >> police in southern california have released the name of the suspect arrested in a deadly shooting spree. jad
to great advantages in early voting and it means we have seen surges from african-american and latino communities and it means they have a greater number of volunteers as well. >> i wonder about voter annoyance by oversaturation. it is everywhere. my television, my radio, i get e-mails. i have gotten telephone calls. i guess they think i am ypped or fair and balanced. i am fair and balanced. at some point you say if you contact me one more time i am not voting for you. >> that's what people say. they are frustrated. they can't sit through dinner without the phone ringing or watch television without six negative attack ads. they can't even go through their mail. even saturday afternoon people are knocking on their door. that's where volunteers and people that live in the community are important. they willisen to their neighbors. there will be a few percentage of points that are undecided into election day. and then there is the unsure if they think they know what they will do. >> christie, last question to you, and making a slight left turn here. president obama has seen commanding lea
.2% of the state's population. four counties in the fourth district have latino populations of more than 10%. five other counties have a population of more than 5%. congressman king, what is your plan to deal with illegal immigration while still making iowa a warm and welcoming place for new immigrants? >> we need to remember we are all god's children created in his image. there has to be dignity provided for all human beings. but the united states than any other nation, we have to have a border. you don't protect the border and decide who comes and goes, there you are not -- you are not a nation at all. at the center of this is the rule of law. it's one of the essential pillars of american exceptional some. most of the laws that we need are out there and i would add one more to it -- it's called the new idea act. the acronym stands for illegally, deduction, elimination act. brings the irs into the enforcement. this piece of legislation gives the employer safe harbor if they use --- if they use e- legal. hopefully i can finish in the orbital period -- in the rubble. >> what is your plan to deal wi
think if you look particularly at two groups for the president, latinos and you look at young voters, particularly the hispanics, he's getting 70% in our poll. but they're down by 12 points as far as enthusiasm. so the net effect is the same. so he's getting the same amount of hispanic help this time as he got four years ago. if he wants to truly take advantage of that, he's got to get hispanics more fired up. >> chuck, it's sam. two questions for you. one is, why is ohio not, in your estimation, a lean obama state at this juncture in all the polling news? and secondly, in what states with early voting do you think another candidate's going to actually have a real advantage and get out to a lead that might be insurmountable on election day? >> reporter: well, i'm not sure that -- i'm not sure we would talk about ohio. i mean, i sort of -- let's see if anything moves after the first debate. i think this is going to be an interesting question for the romney campaign in a week. if the ohio numbers don't move, there is a strong case to be made. joe, you and i walked through this path, th
that in a president before. to me it is pretty cut and dry. it's racism. i'm american of latino decent and even though i -- i don't agree with what a lot of what the president says, or how he handles the gop, but if i ever meet him face-to-face i'm surely going to call him president and i'm never going to bark at him. look at george baby bush he was one of the most arrogant presidents in my time and nobody ever called him out on the things they should have. >> jamal: thank you david. we'll take a quick break and then we'll be right back after this. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. >> you know, blaming this economy on barack obama is kinda like blaming your hangover on the guy making breakfast. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. this campaign has become so toxic, beverly hills housewives are now injecting it into their foreheads. weekly show. >> i love romney's debate style, but i tell you, if i could be that stiff for 90 minutes, i'd ...

that we know is, say, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive, or what kind of cereal they eat, or all kinds of little factors that the people know from, you know, when you fill out surveys or when you buy things, that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressively in 2008, and they've been building on that ever since. so they've built a really formidable sort of digital, integrated data-targeting effort, that they then have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else, so they know practically who all of their voters are, the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. host: molly ball is a staff writer covering national politics at "the atlantic," they're talk to us about the ground game for both candidates. you can read her work at pick up the phone and give us a call. 202-585-3881 for republicans. 202-585-3880 fo
